Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon X5690

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.46 GHz vs 1.47 GHz More than 2.2x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better PassMark score 9,059 vs 268 More than 33.8x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.47 GHz vs 2.11 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,504 vs 419 More than 3.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 1 11 more threads
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.97 GHz vs 1.47 GHz Around 3.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More l2 cache per core 0.33 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core Around 35% more l2 cache per core
